A Will and Ice Skates

Saturday, June 22, 2013      4 comments

Let me begin by stating that no, I did not inherit a pair of skates. Rather, I am speaking of the will that lives inside of me. That will keeps me going. It's what makes me return to work each day to a challenging and demanding management job... Read more

It's 8 lbs!

Sunday, June 03, 2012      7 comments

Yep, it's 8 lbs but it ain't no baby and it ain't no baby fat. So I need to lose 8 lbs and I'd like to have it off by, say, umm, next week! Please! No? Right there on that package of raspberry ketones, it says "lose a pound a day". It'... Read more

Mama's Sugar Blues

Tuesday, September 20, 2011      5 comments

Although I reached my goal a year and a half ago, I have gained a few pounds back. Sugar is one of the enemies. Not only does it add too many empty carbohydrates to my diet (way of eating) but after many years, I have finally realized it is th... Read more

I reached my goal!

It took me 4 years but I finally reached my goal! I first joined Sparkpeople in Jan '06 at 164 lbs. I had just lost 14 lbs having reached my all-time high weight of 178 just a few months before in Nov '05. Twice I got down to just below 150 but ... Read more

Working on the last 10...

Wednesday, October 07, 2009      2 comments

I started my weight loss journey over 4 years ago with 49 pounds to lose in order to reach my ideal goal. This past year, I've told myself (and others) that I would be quite content if I only lost 38 of those pounds but I seemed to hit a groove ... Read more

My 100-calorie Snack

Friday, August 28, 2009      1 comments

I discovered this by chance when logging my food intake after a very long hiatus. Anyway, when I logged in a snack I had concocted, lo and behold, it was 100 calories! LOL, so this is it, a healthy version of a crisped rice cereal treat. ... Read more

Last day of June and I made my goal for this month!

Tuesday, June 30, 2009      4 comments

Finally, back under 150 again! I did reach this same point last June, and the June before, too, but that's the past... Now I am working towards the next goal: 140.... Read more

Walk, walk, walk...

Thursday, February 19, 2009      4 comments

Well, I'm starting this blog with a great big sigh. Y'know, I never meant to go this long without blogging. I don't know what's got into me but I am still trying to get this weight off. I choose healthy & wholesome foods most of the time, dri... Read more

My Tessie has cancer

Thursday, May 01, 2008      11 comments

Tessie is our 13 yr old Golden Retriever. The pic shows her about 5 years ago on a camping trip up in Idaho. I took her to the vet because her arthritic leg seems to be causing her more pain lately; also, she's developed so many lumps all over... Read more

Reading Good Literature

Wednesday, February 27, 2008      2 comments

This was in response to the Healthy Reflections e-mail titled READING AS BRAIN FOOD. "To read without reflection is like eating without digesting." ~Edmund Burke And that's as close to dieting as this journal entry will get! Or maybe ... Read more

In lieu of food tracking

Sunday, February 24, 2008      2 comments

I've mostly given up food tracking for many months now, and perhaps that had something to do with the gainback of 17 of the 32 lbs I'd lost. However, I was never 100% consistent with it (partly because of the difficulty in logging items not in ... Read more

What have I become?

Saturday, February 02, 2008      5 comments

It is very flat here in the desert and I found myself needing a bit of challenge for my walk so I took a little drive east one day to a place called Silly Mountain. When beginning the walk, you have to climb over a little bar to get out of the p... Read more
